Born in southeast Missouri, Kyle grew up fishing small lakes, ponds, and Ozark streams for just about anything with gills. As he got older, his favorite was stream fishing for smallmouth bass. That is until he fly fished for the first time in Colorado. He has been focused on fly fishing ever since.
After college he came to Mountain Home to work for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Trout Management Program. He soon began spending weekends guiding for trout on the White and North Fork Rivers and smallmouth on Crooked Creek. His favorite thing about guiding is being able to pay forward all of the great tips and instruction he received along the way!
